a dozen years now almost, and it's due in great part to the generous support of rolls royce north america, we thank you for that support. without which we couldn't do this program. it's a pleasure for us to have with us this morning, the chief of staff of the united states army, general ray odierno. general odierno is from new jersey. anybody who is from new jersey these days has been a little bit distracted. new jersey took the brunt of the storm. i grew up in louisiana. we are sort of used to this sort of thing, but we don't usually have hurricanes that have a wind chill and snowfall associated with them. which complicates matters. i hope everyone's all right up there this morning. we have been doing this series recently focusing on where are the military services going? it's a very important point of history. general odierno started in the army back during not the last draw down but the one before that. the one after vietnam. those of you who have been coming to our events know we have been talking about draw downs for some time now. eventually it had to get here and we are now at the
security committee, new york republican peter king. then where does america stand on the verge of a second obama term in office? the economy, the fiscal cliff talks, the president's priorities in the next four years. our roundtable is here. david brooks of "the new york times." msnbc's reverend al sharpton. former ceo of hewlett-packard carly fiorina >> historian and film maker ken burns. and nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. and we'll hear from new york congressman, gregory meeks, as we check in on some of the hardest-hit victims of hurricane sandy and see how they offered thanks this weekend while surrounded by destruction. >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press." with david gregory. >>> president obama doing his part for the economy over the weekend out holiday shopping as part of small business saturday, picking up several children's book at an independent bookstore in arlington. >>> meanwhile, uncertainty in the middle east. more clashes in egypt over the weekend as police use tear gas this mornin
examining america's education system and the impact on national security. council on foreign relations moderates the discussion, about an hour. >> welcome to this evening, broadcast of morning joe. the energy in this room is a real testament to two things. one is how the education reform has ripened, a combination of meade, the talent we see in this room has coalesced on the issue of new technologies but there is a sense that the moment has arrived and the other is jeb bush. [applause] >> i am a great believer that two things matter in life. won his ideas and the other is people. that is the real driver of change, the real driver of history. when you unpack it all and jeb bush is a perfect example. the coming together of a person with real talent and drive with a set of ideas and this is one of them. the fact that you are all here is the greatest salute you could give. condoleezza rice and i come out of a national security background. we use to mess around with something called the rand bond calculator. xbox it used to calculate what was known as the cp, the circular error of probable
. that will be live here on c-span2 starting at 1:30 p.m. eastern. >> america ranks 29th thousands speed of the an attack such leading industrial likes of the world as moby and ukraine. moldavia and ukraine. we pay the highest price and were by far. by one match with a 38 times what the japanese paper bit of information. if you buy one of these triple play packages and i have one in my home, you pay on average with taxes and use $160. in france you pay $38 u.s., and you get worldwide calling to 70 countries are not just u.s. and canada. you get worldwide television, not just domestic, and your internet is 20 times faster uploading and 10 times faster downloading, and your bank is than 25 cents on the dollar. all these other countries understand the fundamental principle, in the 19th century, canals and railroads were the key to economic growth as industrial nation came along and you had to move heavy things like steel. the 20 century came along, it was highways, interstate highway program and airports that were crucial to economic growth. now it's the information superhighway. what does
in the middle east. it is building to a kre skend oh. the elections are over. now america must act. what does america have to do? >> well, with syria, if the opposition will get its act together, and become unified, it seems to me that then we should surely support turkey's request for patriot missiles as defenses against any threat from syria. but also we then have to consider a no-fly zone, providing the opposition in syria comes together. but, again, all this goes looking for ways to keep the pressure on iran and to keep taking away from iran the kind of weaponry, both psychological and real, that they are using. >> i want to shift gears as we talk about your concern about our national security in the middle east. let's bring it back home, and the fiscal cliff talks that are going to begin this week. as chairman of the armed services committee, of course, all of these defense jobs that are imperiled by what's called sequestration, meaning automatic spending cuts, half of which would come from defense, you're talking about $50 billion a year starting in january for 10 years unless this deal
that will help the american people to progress. i want to see america -- >> host: you want compromise? >> caller: i want compromise, yes. but i'm going to tell you this, and make no mistake about it, we have people in this country that have completely destroyed rather than try to compromise and try to bring the government to some sort of conclusion where everybody will benefit. some people in this country feel as though other people should not exist or have any benefit and they would do everything possible, spend all their money, disrupt the government and do whatever they can to prevent other people from having a happy life. >> host: let me ask you this. do you think that president obama should govern as if he has a mandate? how far should he pushed, should he be aggressive? >> caller: he has to be aggressive because if he doesn't -- >> host: is that compromise though? >> caller: you can be aggressive and still compromise. let me say this, the congress is the tea party for and if obama or romney or the other was president we would still have trouble because the tea party has an agenda and we ha
afforded me by a good education that america invested in. now we live in a world where there is far too little investment, and is typically in higher education. there are four great community colleges in this area. we need to be making the investments in the community colleges. for a couple of reasons. partly because it is a good, affordable way for kids to get an education. partly because it helps us build a future. persistent technology here in western massachusetts, this is a real opportunity for the future. only if there is a well-educated work force. that starts and home school, on into community colleges, and on into universities. i want to say this is about priorities. that is how i see it. there will not be a single, magic bullet. what the priorities. students will have to pick up more of the costs of student loans. twice, senator brown voted to let students rates double. why? it would have forced to pay for it closing a loophole used by millionaires. it is called the newt gingrich loophole. what are your priorities? protecting loopholes for millionaires or college education? >>
says america has to grow up and get over its victorian kind of thinking about sex scandals but i honestly believe that. this is nothing but a giant love triangle. it is a classic case of a guy in power who is -- who is there for attractive -- who is therefore attractive to some women or some men. people in power celebrities are always surrounded by those who are sexually attracted to them and people in -- men -- particularly men in power love it. they love the attention and they easily fall for the temptation. it happens all the time. they love this. being the focus of so much adoring attention. they go out. petraeus, i'm sure not the first general. not the first politician, not the first man in power the first celebrity to have an affair. but for this to blow up into some national scandal or seen as some reason why petraeus has to resign, i still think is crazy. we have little insight into this from lieutenant colonel retired john neagle who is a buddy of petraeus talked to him and said petraeus was really, re
know, america is going down the wrong track, and if we don't do something about it now, if we don't get our country back on the road to growth and prosperity, my 13-year-old son jack, all of our children and our grandchildren won't inherit the same country that we did. there are two philosophies in this race, one that believes in government as the solution, the other belief, my belief, it believes in the individual, it believes in you. while my opponent supports president obama's big government agenda, i'm fighting against the president's failed policies because i believe north dakotans, not washington, ought to be trusted to make decisions about their family, their money and their opportunities. now, i agree -- i grew up in western north dakota, i started a business in north dakota, i served in the best citizens' legislature in the country where we created policies that have made north dakota the envy of the nation. in north dakota we balance our budget. we do it by living within our means and making the decisions today, not tomorrow or next year. that's the north dakota way, and that'
. there was a not ideal candidate. it was not an ideal campaign, et cetera. but yes, america, in america, something is always being borne. it's always changing. dem graphically it's changing. at the end of the day, elections are actually about ideas, they're about the stands that each party takes. republicans do have to sit down and say, what are we doing and as important, how are we doing it? >> we have seen the reemergence of mitt romney this week. a smiling mitt romney. i want to show it out there with his family. ruth, both peggy and matt talking about the kind of rethinking the republicans will have to go through, but there has been a temptation with losing party, to pile on the candidate and blame it all on him. >> he's the guy, he's the one who lost it for us, it wasn't our fault, that would be the wrong lesson to take. i think there's a danger for democrats, resting on their laurels. yes, the country is becoming browner, wedge issues aren't as wedgy as they used to be. but the republican party unless you believe it's the stupid party which i don't is just as capable of changing and moderniz
of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's do the right thing together for our country. host: ron, you are up first. what was the message to washington? caller: i really think compromise is in the air in a positive way. it is so wonderful in my mind of president obama was elected. people can start to really work together. not just politicians, but people who will help solve problems and move forward and enter a positive way. -- in a positive way. so many negative comments i heard before the election. i really think they have no validity in trying to portray him as somebody who is not doing well by people. the thing that has not been mentioned on c-span or other channels very often is that the republican driven congress and obstructed. when they had their democratic majority, people fail to mention 12 blue dog democrats, which in my view were very republicans in disguise. host: let's look forward. what do you want the president to work on? caller: i think jobs. included in that will be energy, moving f
find. many lining up for midnight openings including 30,000 people at minneapolis' mall of the americas. others at an even earlier time because more and more stores are opening their doors on thanksgiving hoping the earlier hours will help boost their bottom lines. welcome to "america live," i'm rick folbaum. heather: and i'm heather childers, we are in for megyn kelly. and joining the bargain hunters at wal-mart today, swarms of union-backed protesters campaigning against thanksgiving day openings and what they say are low wages. we're also hearing reports that some walmart employees have even walked off the job. james rosen has been in the thick of one of those protests, and he joins us now live from landover hills, maryland. james? >> reporter: heather and rick, good afternoon. from what walmart executives are telling us, the protest staged here at this particular walmart store affectionately known as number 5129 in suburban maryland, may have been the largest mounted anywhere in the country. by our unofficial count, some 400 picketers arrived in five charter buses from the d.c. area
-- i should say north america, our backyard, and that is what is happening in venezuela. there you have the election of chavez. it was a free and fair election. you have a leader who is not fitting in the category you just mentioned, but someone who basically has used elections in non-democratic ways. he is elected in but then takes seriously non-democratic measures internally. that is a very difficult situation to grapple with in terms of fundamentalists. >> from my european point of view, the so-called unipolar moment has led us in nato, led the west, led the united states, in my view, to over emphasize the possible use of the military. i think over the last decade we have been forced to acknowledge the fact the obligation of military force tends to solve, at best, military challenges, but if he were faced with a political problem, you need a political solution, which means more than just the military. that appears to me to be a growing consensus in our community. and that leads me to the first question about what the gentleman over there asked about development and the military. as a
america. if you continue on the same track the party will keep losing ground. host: from "the weekly standard," in both cases president bush and president obama winning by a margin of victory by 2.4%. guest: that does not surprise me. i knew it was going to be minutes before the republican party through mitt romney under the bus. i do think he was a weak candidate, but the republicans nominated him as a behind him and insisted he was the answer rayers.ica's pereir they did not have any choice. when you look at the other choices in the primary, who would have done a better job? herman cain? michele bachmann? jeb bush did not run. they got stuck with mitt romney. host: california has gone from a republican to a purple to a solid democratic state. what has changed? ronald reagan winning back in 1984. guest: i am proud to take a little bit of credit for that four at one time being the democratic party chair in california. the republican party is a mirror of the national republican party in the sense that i think they lost track of where the country was moving. republican registration in
they are going to represent the united states of america as the united states of america is, and not based on some 50-year-old model. >> operator, last question, please. >> in 2008, after the election, you famously left open offices across the country to keep your round game intact. what happens to that infrastructure now, and the think the ground game in the infrastructure you have for this campaign can be translated to whoever runs in 2016? >> thank you for the question. as we talked about earlier, we will go for a process with our supporters and have a conversation with them about what they want to do next. we have always listened to the ground game, listen to our supporters. part of the lesson of 2012 for us is let people run the kind of campaign they believe in. that is why the president's message resonate so well out there. we will have a process for our folks where we discuss the future. we will spend some time learning the lessons from the other night before we start thinking about 2014 or 2016. >> first of all, we are going to take our cues from our supporters, things got done bec
and begin the new year getting the dave cotes of this world to invest in america. >> senator corker, it's always a pleasure. thank you very much. >> thank you. >>> and up next, protests in egypt and the turnover on the president's foreign policy team. we'll talk to dennis ross. >>> and still ahead, former bush national security adviser steven hadley, plus our correspondents in the field. this is "andrea mitchell reports" only on msnbc. sometimes what we suffer from is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a sev
was a way to sort of show the power, show the middle east that in fact america is still lock step with israel and that there is power in the two of them working in concert. >> oh, i don't know about the word lock step when you talk about president obama and benjamin netanyahu. i think the first thing they could do if they are in lock step is stop yelling at each other. >> they have to put forth a united front at the very least. we understand, i fully am aware of how tenuous that relationship is, but they were able to come together on some sort of agreement, however layered it is we are not sure at this point, that remains to be seen, but in terms of posing a force in front of morsi, they've got to be in concert together, do you agree? >> well, i thought it was interesting that morsi had actually manufactured the cease-fire before secretary of state clinton arrived, but out of just deference to the united states both morsi and benjamin netanyahu waited until secretary of state clinton was there until they announced it, which really meant we didn't have as much power as we have in t
to step down as the honorary president of the boy scouts of america, all because the scouts ban -- all because of the scouts' ban on openly gay members, a lesbian mom removed from her post as her son's den master earlier this year. right now more than 1,000 people have signed a new petition on dosomething.org. it needs more than 70,000 before they'll submit it to the white house. greg thomas, campaigns manager with dosomething.org, who started the petition. good morning. >> how are you doing? >> i'm pretty good. president obama has denounced the boy scouts policies and the supreme court upheld the policy in 2000. what would your petition accomplish? >> i think the petition would accomplish having president obama kind of practice what he's preaching. he is talking about not believing in their policy and thinking that, you know, it's not something they should be doing. if he's going to be honorary president of the boy scouts as a leader, he should -- their goal should align with his goals. if their goals don't align with his goals i don't think it's appropriate for him to be a leader of
. we shouldn't rule out the entire range of potential terrorist attacks and what would do to america's relations and to america's set of priorities in the middle east taking down an airplane blowing of the series of embassies and attacking civilians, foreign governments as was tried in washington with the attack on the saudi ambassador and the foreign governments using terrorism even on our soil. it is a whole range of possibilities. let's not for close dealing with them. third, a sinai clash on steroids. we saw in august of 2011, how the attempt by terrorists, the effort by the terrorists to kill the israelis triggered the reaction that ended up with the egypt and israel peace treaty being this far away from total collapse. i measured this as being the thickness on the door of the israeli embassy in cairo outside of which the protesters were banding down the door to attack the american -- the diplomats on the other side of the door. and that is when the military controlled egypt. today there is a different situation. another clash triggered by terrorists seeking to promote egypt, is
protestant, jew or gentile, it seems this is a fight for america to protect those things that makes us different from other countries. so, yes, there's a lot of pressure to cut it, let the private sector do it, and i don't think that has any place in our society. let capitalism do what they want but let maeshg take care of the sick and the aimed. >> there is a split about what to do over whether to overhaul medicare and other entitlements. is that what you're hearing and what do you think is where this should end up? >> there is no question. you say overhaul medicare. medicare is how we pay for medical services for the aged. what we have to overhaul is how we provide those services. there is no question that pea pay double the price for medical treatment than any other country in the world. so the system has to be reviewed. it's not just the question of dollars and cents even though that continues to soar. we've got to stop it. and the affordable act that the president has passed has been a savings that contained it by not allowing people 0 to get free care without insurance and having
america that celebrating doorbuster, the same american conically underprepared for college savings and retirement. in the spirit of the holiday season a smart is the new rich list. number one, make a list. you will be bombarded today with online promotions. the retail industry has branded this cyber monday. the hope is you'll spend more money today after a weekend of spending money. you're up against millions of dollars in advertising trying to get you to spend more than you want on stuff that you don't need. resistance is not futile. number two, if you can't afford it, put it down. the same america that's arguing now about how to pay for what we've already spent, you don't have to do that at home. if you can't pay for it this month or next month, don't get it. number three, if it pays to wait, deal news says better deals for high-end hd tvs, winter clothing and toys are ahead. it pays to wait. number four, if you must, make sure shipping is free. a majority of retailers will be offering free shipping. you might as well go for that. number five, always save first. the personal savi
chambliss says he cares more about america and the fiscal mess we're in than he does his pledge to grover norquist. he's ready to deal with democrats who want to raise the tax rate of the richest 2%, but ep everyone else pretty much the same. again, the deadline is january 1st. no deal in washington and we'll all be looking at increased taxes, just as holiday expenses come due. let me bring in my guest here to talk us through all the possible scenarios, bob cusack, good to have you back on the show, managing editor of "the d.c. journal the hill." let's do a little refresher. who is grover norquist, talk to me about this pledge. it is not just about raising taxes, is it not? >> it is not just about raising taxes. this is a pledge that is spearheaded by activist grover norquist, a popular figure on the right and he basically is -- most members but not all members of congress on the republican side to sign this pledge which basically says they're not going to increase tax rates and also if they close deductions they would use that money to lower taxes in another area. after seeing republican
to the united states of america. then we can outline what action might be taken. but first, condemn it. this is not acceptable. this is not what they expect. over dollars will be related to the progress toward democracy. >> senator mccain is helpful here by pointing out that the united states has leverage over egypt. i disagree with jonah on the idea id's a new dictatorship in home of the muslim brotherhood. in the negotiation with israe israel, morsi showed he can separate himself out and fact a pragmatic fashion. i don't know if he is represent brotherhood. the next day cashing in the political capital by declaring yourself unimpeachable dictator of the country. >> i guess we know this. there is no question on the matter of human rights. pickerson said we went from guys from mustaches to beards. not a good trade. our goal is not to secure democracy for any other company. our goal is to secure the best deal we can. whatever it takes. no advantage to alienate the largest air company in the world. i rarely support obama for anything. but hesitating to attack morsi what we knew he would
or one department of a store in north america that is union represented today. then in 2005, 2006, they shifted tactics and ran basically a public relations and political campaign against walmart out of washington. that had some pressure effect on walmart. what's happening now is somewhat different in that what's happening is that they're organizing -- they're trying to disrupt walmart organizing walkouts of workers outside the stores. it is much harder to suppress that than unionization votes but the question is whether enough workers will have the courage and are angry enough to actually walk out and it is possible they will but it's hard to envision right now. because they have -- it has been pretty small. >> jennifer: we'll see what happens on friday. obviously it is getting a lot of publicity. you never know whether something like that has an impact long-term. how is it that walmart has been allowed to do this to workers for years? i don't know if even they could be subject to penalties that might force them to ch

believe in the greatness of america, i believe that this president can lead. i believe that his secretary of state, whoever that might be, can also lead. >> john mccain's humor, we understand, but he was certainly treating this as though it is very much in play. of course, as we point out, the president has not nominated her, but we understand all of our reporting and colleague's reporting he would like to nominate her to be secretary of state. can she try to -- can they try to ram this through? >> well, you know, the president has a right to nominate the person he thinks is best for all these positions and andrea, as you know, there may be vacancies in four or five key positions in his administration. so he has to make the best judgment for that. i would just hope that all members of congress would give any nominee, obviously, due consideration. and today ambassador rice is being asked lots of questions and she -- i thought she made the right decision. she took the initiative, the administration did, to have her go up to capitol hill. that's the right position. and as long as the adminis
